Where To Find: Auckland's Best Toasties & Sandwiches

Fill up on cheesy goodness or wholesome fillings inside soft, fresh bread

Fort Greene
With a mission to 'create the perfect sandwich', Fort Greene take this genre of food very seriously. They bake their own bread, pack their sandwiches full of wholesome ingredients and have created a very cosy space to enjoy them in. Try the four cheese toastie with pickles and wash it down a Sawmill pilsner to match.

There are plenty of sandwich options on offer at Daily Bread bakery in Pt Chevalier, one of which is the 'build your own' route where you can create the sandwich of your dreams. Another favourite is the Kim Cheese Toastie — a spicy, cheesy delight.

New cafe and bakery Baby is offering an amazing array of cabinet food and a small menu that includes hot jaffles (another name for toasties made in an old-school press). These pockets of deliciousness go down a treat with a glass of their house-made kombucha.
